This is a nice, inexpensive, late model laptop for general office work and web browsing. The SSD hard drive makes this system super fast and stable, while the 16 GB of ram make most applications fast and smooth. Since this is a third generation i5 chip, you will not see the bandwidth and hyperthreading associated with the newer models, so don't buy this for intensive gaming, image rendering, or CAD applications. However, if you want a lightweight laptop with a small footprint for travel and presentations, you will be extremely happy!
LAPTOP: Love it. Exactly what I wanted, although not as described. The details said Windows 7 Pro. When I got it, it had instructions that the original key was no longer valid and had a new one with Windows 7 Home. Ok, I'll live. But it also sid 6 GB of RAM and actually had 8, so that more than made up for it!! SHIPPING: What a joke! I ordered this 2 weeks before vacations, on a Saturday. Expected delivery was Mon/Tues of following week - about 10 days. Didn't ship for almost a week and then finally arrived the night before vacation, so I was scrambling to get it setup. In the world that Amazon has created, I found this unacceptable. While I don't expect everyone to be Amazon, I do use that as the standard and 12 days to receive a non-customized product just isn't acceptable. Furthermore, I would have paid for faster shipping, but the options only got it here a day earlier and the original (wrong) estimate would have been fine.
This is a very old computer. It's not that it is bad per se. I had no idea it was so old because it was 4 GB. It doesn't have a HDMI slot which I thought in this day and age was a given. While it is today it wasn't 7-8 years ago. I thought the price was good but not when you take into consideration how old this is. They saw me coming!!
